Master of Orion 3 is freezing in Windows 7
  

Master of Orion 3 is a game that was downloaded by me quite a time ago. I was playing the same without any problems in Windows XP Service Pack 3, that was the operating system I was using previously. Now, I have done a clean install of the Windows 7 operating system. After that, the installation of the game had also been completed without any problems. The issue that I am facing now is that Master of Orion 3 is freezing in Windows 7. Please reply with some suggestions as soon as possible.

From the system requirements that are mentioned in the above post, I suppose that the problem why Master of Orion 3 is freezing in Windows 7 is because the operating system that you are using is not supported by the game. I suggest that you should quit Windows 7 operating system because it has such issues with many softwares and programs and thus, you may face great problems in the future.
